There are things about Hawaii that you can’t help but daydream about. Those certain features that set this beautiful island paradise a part from anywhere else in the world. And best of all, they’re completely free.
Hawaii no doubt lives up to its nickname, the “Rainbow State.” On any given day, there’ll a beautiful spectrum of colors stretched across the Hawaiian skies. In fact, there may be two – if you’re lucky, that is. And whether you make it to the end of the rainbow or not, just know that the pot of gold lies in the simple blessing of seeing one at all.
I won’t discriminate when it comes to sunsets and sunrises in Hawaii. Both are equally gorgeous in their own way – from the varying hues of golds and pinks to the thin and wispy puffs of clouds that dance along the horizon. There’s nothing more peaceful than those very moments, when you can breathe in the start to yet another blessed day or exhale, letting go of it all, only to do it all over again tomorrow.
No matter where you turn in the islands, you’re bound to encounter one of the very mountains that make up the land beneath you. They’re breathtaking, too. I love driving to and from the windward side of Oahu, where the backdrop is always the same and always just as beautiful as the last time I was there. A lush and verdant Koolau mountain range stands vastly and ever-so powerfully over the humbled town below. It’s a constant reminder for us to enjoy the surrounding beauty in nature and never take that for granted.
